It may seem like a simple assumption that drug testing within the transportation industry provides safety, regulation, and standards to businesses that fall under the Department of Transportation’s guidelines. You may not have known, however, that prior to 1990, drug testing within this industry was not considered required? Nowadays, the Department of Transportation cooperates with transport and logistics companies to ensure that all drivers who fall within the guidelines for testing are compliant with all rules and regulations set forth by the Department of Transportation.
Some benefits that have been realized due to the relatively knew regulations are listed below:
- Increased safety on the road
- Increased positive driving records -Increase in punctuality
- Increase in driver retention numbers
- Decrease in drug use among truck drivers
